Re: 2020 Austrian Grand Prix Free Practice & Qualifying Thre

Well practice doesn't show everything, but given it is effectively the start of the season (where hamilton sometimes takes time to get up to speed) and Bottas often seems better overall at this track, I did actually expect him to be a little closer. Mercedes 1 - 2 look certain though. Edit, i maybe...

Re: Mercedes team dynamics

While the off-season is (still) on, I've been reading a lot of new (and rehashed) interviews with (admittedly mostly British and Mercedes folks) people talking about Lewis Hamilton, and today I read a quote from Wolff which made me do a double-take: “I want to do my part to ensure that Lewis Hamilt...

Fia spokesman. “For us to cancel it on our own would require less than 12 cars to be available. But other than that or from the local authourities the FIA cannot cancel because there are too many commercial agreements that in cancelling the liability would come back to us”

Spectators will not be allowed in. Victorian premier Daniel Andrews told 7News Sydney: “On public health grounds, there will be no spectators at the grand prix this weekend if a race actually happens at all. That is a matter for them and they will make announcements very soon.”
